Important Notice: Health Savings Account (HSA) Distributions On September 3, 2010, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued guidance regarding the use of tax-favored vehicles—such as HSAs—to pay for over-the-counter medicines and drugs. Beginning January 1, 2011, a distribution from an HSA for a medicine or drug is a tax-free qualified medical expense only if the medicine or drug: Requires a prescription; is an over-the-counter medicine or drug for which the individual has obtained a prescription; or is insulin.
If amounts are distributed from an HSA for any medicine or drug which does not satisfy one of these requirements, the amounts will be distributions for nonqualified medical expenses. Nonqualified medical expenses are includable in gross income and generally subject to a 20 percent additional tax. For a complete copy of the IRS guidance, please click here.
